Cape Town - Both Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs will be taking part in this year’s edition of the King’s Super Cup in Swaziland on Saturday, July 18.
It is a one day event in which Chiefs will face off against Mbabane Swallows at 9:00 while Pirates take on the Swazi league champions, Royal Leopards, at 11:00.
The draw for the cup was held last night in Swaziland and the games are set to take place at the Somhlolo National Stadium in Lobamba.
“This tournament is about love & peace and unity. It also reconfirms our relationship with Swaziland through soccer. It’s about bringing people together,” said Bobby Motaung at last night’s event according to the Chiefs website.
Swaziland’s Minister of Sports, Culture and Youth Affairs, David Ngcamphalala took a different approach to the tournament, saying: “Please care that the South African clubs get thrashed.”
The final is set to take place at 15:00 on the day with the winner taking home R1m.
If the Soweto Giants both make the final it will be the first time that they play one another outside of South Africa.
